Dear SSBF friends and colleagues,
As most of you know, the Society for the Study of Bio-Political Futures has been represented by a stream at SLSA and SLSAeu conferences in the last few years – at University of Notre Dame, Indiana, University of Turin, and South Methodist University, Dallas. In June, 2016 (14-17th), I will chair the SLSAeu at Stockholm University, Sweden and it is our aim to include a SSBF stream also here.
If you are interested in participating, please send me a message to let me know if you would like to propose a paper, or even better, a panel within the stream (no abstract needed as yet). The conference theme is “Control,” which I in my own work understand in a post-Foucauldian/post-Deleuzian vein but which can, of course, also be understood more broadly as pertaining to political developments over the last few decades. The stream will be presented as “Papers from the Society for the Study of Biopolitical Futures” and be posted on the SSBF webpage, as per usual.
Looking forward to hearing from you and, hopefully, welcoming you to Stockholm in 2016.
